Elysia – Valley of the Nude 1933
46min | Drama | 27 October 1933 (USA)
A reporter is assigned to write a article on a nudist camp.
Good depiction of nudism as wholesome. Beautiful bodies.
Stilted dialogue and silly fiction cover-story of a reporter sent to investigate. Interspersed crackpot comments on nudism as a cure-all are a detriment or added humor, depending on your tastes. What about skin cancer? At times they wear shoes and socks which gives a dorky look. Other times they scamper around completely bare, getting covered with dust – and no worries about thorns, snakes, or sunburn! Well worth watching, but not as good as “Unashamed (1938)”
